DiamondLink Introduces E-Commerce Capabilities

GemFind’s retail sourcing app, DiamondLink, which enables retailers to curate lists of diamond suppliers, announced new e-commerce capabilities for its WordPress, Magento 2.0, and Shopify platforms.

This new e-commerce edition of the app allows jewelers to sell diamonds directly on their website, giving them click reports to see who has been looking at their inventory lists and when. A multicurrency function expands the offerings to an international customer audience.

Retailers are also able to sell diamonds from their vendors in real time without owning them, and the app includes availability for drop-ship options directly from several diamond companies to the consumer. “The DiamondLink e-commerce edition enables retailers to compete at the same level with major diamond selling websites while taking advantage of the unique customization of their diamond inventory,” said Alex Fetanat, founder and CEO of GemFind, in a statement. “Jeweler-curated virtual diamond inventory, coupled with critical online tools, will develop significant traffic and sales.”
